I got a Panasonic VCR. The remote says "universal". But in the instructions, I find out that if it isn't one of the 10 TVs listed.....it won't work for turning the TV on and off. GRRRrrrrr. Plus.....the volume doesn't work on it either.
Fortunately, the remote on my old Panasonic VCR DOES work it. How can they say Universal, when it's not? I have a Phillips TV, and it seems like it should be included. Why do they do that? Is it normal for the volume not to work while viewing a recorded tape, for the same reason that the remote doesn't turn the TV on and off? Thanks for your help.
